It’s finally here!

Equal in QAfter a historic win at the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday, marriage equality has come to Louisiana!

This morning, the Jefferson Parish Clerk of Court became the first Clerk of Court to give the green light to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Shortly thereafter, in a ceremony officiated by The Honorable Paula Brown of the Civil District Court of New Orleans, Michael Robin and Earl Benjamin were finally able to say I DO! Forum for Equality sends the happily married couple its biggest congratulations and love!

Couples like Michael and Earl are now able to obtain their marriage licenses in various parishes across the state. Please stay up to date through our Decision Day Resources. We continue to work across Louisiana to make marriage available in every Parish!

We also keep working to end discrimination against the LGBT community entirely!  The cycle of injustice against the LGBT community can only come to an end with your help!

Please join the Forum for Equality in our continued fight against those forces in Louisiana that would have the LGBT community treated as second-class citizens!

With Equality for all,
SarahJane Brady
Executive Director, Forum for Equality
